Ontario’s Adrenechrome are hurtling forward like zombies with a hunger for flesh looking to create good old-fashioned rock n’ roll infused with groove and peppered with metal. The group features Chris Friesen dominating on guitar and lead vocals, Tim Kehoe who shreds guitar and haunting vocal work, Matt Copeland thrashing the drums, and Mike Van Dyk creating groovy basslines. Their name inspires a frantic, adrenaline fueled misadventure and is a direct reference to a fictional drug in the film “Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas”.
These heavy metal monsters started in 2010 and rode like the four horsemen to devour every audience they could around Canada. Their songwriting swings like an unhinged pendulum between rapid, brief works to heavy, ten-tonne brick tunes. Members are veterans of the music scene, coming from various acts like Gaswitch, Shimmy Rabbits, and The Doug Trucker Band. Live, the band is tight and strictly a “no frills”affair — this means no make up or gimmicks, just straight-forward, kick-ass metal.
The band has upcoming album ‘Tales From Adrenechrome’ is due out on November 27, 2015 to follow-up their 2012 debut ‘Hideous Appetites’ and is their most abstract, spastic, and explosive release to date. This album is established on heavy riffs, roaring drums, smooth bass lines, and wrapped up with lyrical themes that combine personal experience with fantasy, sci-fi, and classic literature. This album is reserved for only those who can handle the high velocity heavy metal adventure that is Adrenechrome!

“What starts out as a solid thrash album quickly morphs into a far more interesting, original, and engaging work with strong flavours of Mastodon’s proggy sludge and big riffs.” – Metal Hammer
“each song features a sweaty, aggressive thrash engine that propels the music forward, but the instrumentation is far more skillful and intricate than just straightforward shredding. “Hymn for the Heathens” has a great classic rock feel to it and opener “Titans Fall” does its mythic subject matter proud.” – Exclaim!
“The illustrious list of top quality metal bands to emerge from Canada has just been added to. Adrenechrome take the hard hitting technicality of bands like Realm, the addictive assault of classic thrash and bring it all up to date with a liberal helping of Baroness style, passionate free thinking. It’s a fresh, interesting, exciting combination of sounds that makes new seven track EP Hideous Appetites, well worth going out of your way to track down. Songs like ‘Titan’s Fall’ and ‘Hymn For The Heathens’ combine the immediate appeal of crisp, melodic riffing with a clear longevity, born of their intelligent complexity and diversity. CK 4 /5” – Zero Tolerance Magazine
“Adrenechrome have concocted a winning recipe. This four-piece from Ontario, Canada clearly know their way around thrash’s greats but show no fear in chucking in some modern flair. And I don’t mean crash, bang, wallop, what the hell – you only have to hear the opening riff to ‘Titans Fall’ to get those saliva glands going.” – Metal-Rules.com
“Kudos to the guitars for their mix of heaviness and catchiness, as well as inventive rhythms.” – Metallian
“ADRENECHROME are a highly skilled and technically proficient band musically. The songs rage with great breakdowns yet are also layered with lots of crunch and have some tasty Jazz influenced solos throughout.” – Metal-Temple
